Robert Reich at Wheeler Hall, UC Berkeley

Attended Robert Reich's Wealth and Poverty class today at Wheeler Hall. Reich was absent -- he's at Harvard today on a book tour for his 18th publication: The Common Good. Pitch hitting for Reich was Hilary Hoynes, an economist specializing in the American social safety net for disadvantaged families. 723 students packed the auditorium today, not including the unregistered sitting on the floor at the back of the hall.

Robert Reich is a brilliant, accomplished and much-admired man: Author of 18 books, Secretary of Labor under Pres. Bill Clinton and named one of the most effective 20th Century cabinet secretaries by TIME Magazine. His Wealth and Poverty lectures and a discussion of government policy are also available on his popular Facebook page. ~~Susan Ford
